BENGALURU:Tis the season of puja, weddings and most importantly dandiya nights. Here’s a quick guide to glam up your look this festive season.

Hydration is a must this season. Choose a light, non-greasy face lotion and a light night cream. Sonia Vohra, beauty expert recommends buying a mousse. “It is a modern version of the vanishing cream,” she says. It is ideal as a day moisturiser. Just because it’s grey and cloudy doesn’t mean that skin doesn’t get tanned. “You need sun protection even when it’s raining,” cautions Vohra.

She advises against facial sheet masks as they can be harsh and drying. “Anything that promises instant fairness and glow  should be viewed with caution. It will eventually damage the skin.”
With high humidity levels and plenty of rainfall this season, bacterial and fungal infections in the scalp are an issue that must be addressed promptly otherwise you could wind up with balding patches and hair fall. Pollution tends to fade hair and changes its texture and colour. Sulphur in the atmosphere settles down on the hair shaft causing damage. Use organic shampoos and conditioners.

Perm it up

Vohra says, “Cuts and perms of the 80s and 90s are back in vogue. Natural wavy and curly hair is trendier minus the frizz and the Japanese poker straight hair look is out”.  
The non-blow dried look, the shag cut and the ponytail is cool. Extensions are in big times and come in different colours. “So instead of colouring the hair, you can simply add a couple of extensions for volume and length and for a splash of colour,” she says.

Go organic

Organic and mineral make up continue to be popular this season. Long-lasting matte lipstick shades are in, so are glossy lips, which were popular in the 80s and 90s.
Coloured eye liners and mascaras in cobalt blue and darker shades of eye shadow in aubergine, browns and navy blue look great in the evening.

Nail it

Nail polishes in aubergine, dark blue-green, hunter green, smoky neutral, hot orange, brick red and diffused lilac-gray colours and shadesare in this festive season.Use a base coats and top coat, says nail care and nail art expert, Neela Bopaiah.
